Description

The Department of Physics at Albion College invites applications for an appointment in physics at the assistant professor level beginning in August 2022. We are especially interested in candidates who will contribute to a campus climate that supports diversity, equity, and inclusion, which are core institutional values. Albion is dedicated to the highest quality in undergraduate education led by our teacher-scholar faculty. This teacher- scholar model creates a vibrant community that cherishes faculty and student relationships and faculty scholarly contributions.

Candidates are expected to have a PhD in physics or a related field. We seek applicants who have experience in applications that are in high demand in the private sector, such as data analytics, computer programming, engineering, or health. The Department values candidates who have demonstrated teaching excellence and an ability to teach a variety of undergraduate physics courses. Other possible courses include those related to focus areas of the Albion core curriculum including environmental, race/ethnicity, gender, or global issues; first-year seminars; and/or interdisciplinary honors courses. Candidates should have a willingness to adopt modern pedagogical techniques, advise students, and mentor our majors. Albion College is an anti-racist institution. This position will also actively promote diversity, belonging and equity through critical and compassionate communication and strategic outreach efforts to people who identify as historically underrepresented, including first-generation, undocumented and DACA students, and LGBTQ students.

Faculty at Albion College carry a 2/3 teaching load in the first year. In the second year, they carry the regular 3/3 load. In the fourth year, following successful evaluation, faculty are afforded an additional release from teaching for scholarship and carry a 2/2 teaching load in preparation for submitting their application for tenure in the fifth year. Albion College has a strong undergraduate research program that provides summer research stipends for students and faculty; additional funding for resources may be provided by the College's Faculty Development program.

Albion College is a private liberal arts college of approximately 1500 students, situated in a culturally diverse community in south central Michigan within an hour's drive of three major universities: the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor, Michigan State University, and Western Michigan University. Albion is dedicated to the highest quality in undergraduate education and committed to diversity as a core institutional value. The College is committed to a policy of equal opportunity and non-discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, age, or disability as protected by law, in all educational programs and activities, admission of students, and conditions of employment.
